2013 Shelby GT500 Specifications

Want to know every detail possible about the 2013 Shelby GT500? You’re in luck, as we’ve got our hands on a full list of specifications for the car. There’s the obvious stats, like 662 horsepower and 631 lb-ft torque produced by the supercharged 5.8-liter V8 or the fuel mileage of 15/24 mpg city – an improvement from 2012 – but there’s also lots of little details that you might not already know about. For example, did you know that SVT built in an over-rev function in to the engine, allowing it to reach 7,000 rpm for a limited amount of time? Or that the new GT500 now has 15-inch front Brembo brakes and 13.8-inch rear brakes, both larger than last year’s model.
